    Dear colleagues,

    Today I am dreadfully sorry to have to share tragic information with you.

    This is that our brother Simbo Ntiro has suffered a terrible car crash in
    the early hours of Sunday morning (13th July), and that he passed away at
    the scene, here in Dar es Salaam.

    We have therefore lost a founding member of our online community and a very
    energetic participant in national, regional and global efforts in the realm
    of "ICT for Development". He was to turn only 47 years old next month, and
    so may have been expected to have plenty more to contribute in many ways.

    It appears that for some undetermined reason, he lost control of his Honda
    CRV on Ali Hassan Mwinyi Road, just after passing the small feeder road out
    of Leader's Club. This caused his car to mount the high pavement and it was
    stopped by a tree that was hit sideways between the front wheel and the
    driver's door. We were told that he died instantly of his injuries.

    I had spent some time with him during the evening before, and he had at the
    time a very positive mindset brought on by a whole range of issues, one of
    which was a family get-together due for Sunday afternoon, towards which he
    had been shopping. And we also discussed a number of forthcoming
    work-related events which we were preparing jointly.

    My deepest sympathies go to all among us who knew or interacted with him in
    any way. Arrangements are being made to set up an online condolence book,
    so that we may be able to express our sorrow and share our support and
    memories with his family. I hope to be able to provide you a URL for this
    before tomorrow.

    In terms of immediate family, Simbo leaves behind a two children (adolescent
    and young-adult) who were living with him in Dar, and a wife (their mother)
    who is due in from Nairobi today. He also has his mother and elder brother
    who are due in from Kampala. Then he leaves a large extended family with
    members in Tanzania as well as in Kenya and Uganda. Also grieving for him
    is a vast network of friends scattered across all four corners of the globe,
    including this online community.

    May our Almighty God bless Simbo's soul with eternal peace!

    Yours in grief,
    David Sawe.

    Poor Simbo and what a tragedy! I am not saying this because he is gone, but he was such a nice person. This is very sad indeed. Pole David - you were very close.
